I don’t know who Shanesha Taylor is. Supposedly she left her kids in the car when she went on a job interview because she was homeless. The interwebs got a hold of her story and people tried to help her out raising 114k to get her and more importantly, her kids, back on their feet again. Supposedly some activists set her up with job interviews as well, certainly a shoe-in for the position had she shown up, which she didn’t. She blew the money and failed to even put 40k into the trust fund for her kids the courts demanded that she create instead of going to jail.
Tim Black gives his opinion of the developments. He was one of the internet activists who championed her cause initially in good faith. He has a right to be pissed off. And he is.
I like this guy. Kind of reminds me of the old Keith Olbermann before he got fired and sold out.
Agent Provocateurs are All Over the Ferguson Grand Jury Psyop – No Supporting Evidence for “Bomb Making” Story
by Scott Creighton
Reports are out that the Grand Jury deliberating the case against Darren Wilson has come to a decision as to whether or not the officer should be indicted for his Aug. 9th shooting of unarmed Michael Brown but they are going to withhold the announcement of that decision until Sunday. The reason for the delay has not been made clear and officials refuse to say whether or not the Grand Jury is still meeting.
A grand jury decision on whether to charge Officer Darren Wilson with the shooting of Michael Brown is expected to come within the next few days, but as of early Saturday, it remained unclear whether the panel was still at work or when the outcome would be announced. USA Today
If a decision comes Friday, prosecutors are expected to provide law enforcement with 48 hours notice before making a public announcement, possibly on Sunday. CNN
The official reasoning behind this delay is that the prosecutor’s office is giving law enforcement as much time as possible so they can prepare for the backlash from protesters.
I wonder if that is really the case.
The main groups of legitimate protesters have already said they have no plans to invoke violence in Ferguson or anywhere else for that matter. They’ve sat down with law enforcement officials and come to terms on certain “rules” for their protests regardless of the outcome of the Grand Jury decision. In fact, many of the legitimate protesters who were out there 3 months ago protesting the shooting, are going to sit this one out.
So what are they waiting for? They have an agreement with the responsible factions of the protesters to keep it civil and a much smaller turnout thus far in the streets of Ferguson. Why wait?
Well, the answer may be they are waiting BECAUSE they have a smaller turnout and BECAUSE they are expecting less violence and unrest. They need time to allow the Justice Department and Homeland Security time to stoke the fires and put their various agent provocateurs in place.

…Under the Obama plan, the majority of workers who have entered the country without legal documents will still be treated as criminals, to be expelled from the country as soon as they are discovered. The four million to five million covered by the executive order will become a federally regimented cheap labor force…
UPDATE: Obama “asked whether we as a nation shouldn’t “tolerate the hypocrisy of a system where workers who pick our fruit and make our beds never have a chance to get right with the law?” Raw Story
Obama’s reboot of Bush’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 is only PART of the Kafkaesque picture
The globalists are salivating. They are poised to make a huge grab for that brass ring that only undemocratic, executive action can provide. The kind that unelected unaccountable technocrats in places like Greece, Ukraine and Detroit can make. And these guys are doing it right here in the states before our very eyes.
But don’t worry, the globalist guy who brought us the nightmare of NAFTA and brought Haiti the nightmare of neoliberalism says it’s unavoidable and legal and in 20 years or so, even the peasants will approve.
(Bill) Clinton sought to frame the debate in a larger context, saying Americans should be optimistic about the nation’s future. He said the next two decades could be positive for the country if the U.S. can develop inclusive economics and inclusive politics (pro-Business globalization).
“In a world where borders look more like nets than walls, we are interdependent whether we like it or not, so the only thing that remains is to define the terms of our interdependence,” he said. AP
Of course, that’s not exactly the case. Neoliberal Globalization is often referred to as a given by the globalists and their sycophantic minions. Something that is inevitable and unavoidable.
Interdependency is not a prerequisite for a nation’s success or it’s people’s prosperity these days. Libya was a gem prior to Barack Obama and Bill Clinton’s wife bombing them into the fold. Now look at them. Ukraine had it’s gold reserves stolen which sent them into instant poverty on the world stage and now the technocrats we put in power are busy installing the mandated austerity measures on the people.

With the lame duck senate and White House in office, now is the time to push for every neoliberal idea they have. They are wasting no time in doing so.
Another Bush… Get Used to It
Global Warming Tax
Yep, a dem introduced a new carbon tax in the senate and Common Dreams is all for it:
While some of his Democratic colleagues joined with Republicans in pushing the Keystone XL pipeline, Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz had something different in mind. Today they unveiled the American Opportunity Carbon Fee Act…
… Whitehouse referenced conservative voices in defense of his idea, including the late economist Milton Friedman, President Reagan’s economic adviser Art Laffer and President George W. Bush’s Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, whom he quotes as saying earlier this year, “A tax on carbon emissions will unleash a wave of innovation to develop technologies, lower the costs of clean energy and create jobs as we and other nations develop new energy products and infrastructure. Republicans must not shrink from this issue. Risk management is a conservative principle.”
… Whether it can still be done with the new, more extreme crop of climate deniers coming into office in January remains to be seen. But environmental groups greeted the bill with enthusiasm. Common Dreams
They say they know building a consensus among dems and republicans can be done to pass this globalist tax because “it has been done” in other countries. What Common Dreams fails to tell you is that it is often repealed where it is imposed.

Need proof that the seasonal flu vaccine is not effective? Look no further than the CDC’s own publication admitting the fact: Influenza Outbreak in a Vaccinated Population.
Earlier this year (2014) the CDC published a report documenting an influenza outbreak which occurred among fully vaccinated navy personnel aboard the USS Ardent, a U.S. Navy minesweeper moored in San Diego, California while conducting training.
Surprisingly, the CDC admits this is a common occurrence:
The current U.S. Department of Defense influenza vaccination policy mandates that all uniformed personnel receive seasonal influenza vaccination, unless medically exempt, or face punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The policy specifically directs all Navy operational units to be at least 90% vaccinated. However, despite vaccination measures, influenza outbreaks can still occur in highly vaccinated military populations.
In the references section of the study, they list two other studies that showed the exact same thing happened in the past, in 2001 and 2009:
- Earhart KE, Beadle C, Miller LK, et al. Outbreak of influenza in highly vaccinated crew of U.S. Navy ship. Emerg Infect Dis 2001;7:463–5.
- Cosby MT, Pimental G, Nevin RL, et al. Outbreak of H3N2 Influenza at a US Military Base in Djibouti during the H1N1 pandemic of 2009. PLoS One 2013;7:e82089.
What does this say about the rationale of mandatory flu vaccines for school children, or mandatory flu vaccines for healthcare workers in healthcare facilities?
